No IIT-JEE, AIEEE from 2013
It’s official. There will be no IIT-JEE and AIEEE exams from
2013. Students will have to take the new Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) for
admissions to prestigious IITs, NITs, IIITs, deemed universities and other
centrally funded technical institutions between April and June 2013.
JEE will be held in two parts — JEE (Main) and JEE
(Advanced). More importantly, the marks secured in 10+2 board exams will play a
decisive role during final selection of students for admissions to these top
institutions, which is not the case till now.
A good rank secured in the new JEE will no longer guarantee a seat for
students in top institutions as is the case now unless they perform well in 10+2
board exams too.
Putting to rest all confusion surrounding the AIEEE and
IIT-JEE exams, the CBSE finally came out with an official statement that JEE
(Main) will replace the AIEEE exam and JEE (Advanced) will replace the IIT-JEE
